Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus featured stealth sequences that didn’t always work out. The game’s latest piece of downloadable content, The Diaries of Agent Silent Death, provides the sort of sneaky backstabbing that the main game was missing.
I’ve played approximately two billion video games this year. Narrowing that list down to 10 was a painful and bloody process, but I finally managed to choose my favorite games from one of the most exciting years in recent memory.
One of the best features of the rebooted Wolfenstein games has been its likable cast of characters. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was full of complex resistance fighters with different experiences and opinions than hero BJ Blazkowicz. The game’s new downloadable content explores the lives of other people who live…
A picture is worth 1,000 words and a good Simpsons picture is worth one kwyjibo. An intrepid Twitter user is turning still from The Simpsons into wonderful summaries of 2017's top video games.
This is the difficulty menu for Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. In a callback to the original games which also showed up in The New Order, the menu’s telling you only babies play the game on easy. It’s funny on the surface, but also an insidious kind of peer pressure. Don’t listen to it.
Oh boy. This one’s a treat. Wolfenstein II isn’t just one of my favourite games of the year, it’s one of the most stylish games of the year, so it’s a pleasure to be showcasing a big collection of art that went into its creation.
Today on Highlight Reel we have robot stomach issues, Napoleonic headshots, psychedelic Battlefront II loot boxes, and much more!
As expected, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus was modified for the German market, with edits including the time-honored tradition of removing Hitler’s moustache. To counter this, a team have created their own low-budget version of the game called Wolfenstache.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is about injury. From crippled heroes to resistance leaders grappling with PTSD, the game’s cast of heroes bears deep wounds that recall the all-too-real injuries of war veterans, victims, and those who would ignore them.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus’s first round of downloadable content has unlocked. The Freedom Chronicles: Episode Zero blend pulp sensibilities with strong levels design to create a fun package that shows a lot of promise.
I wish more video games would let their hair down like Wolfenstein: The New Colossus does.
YouTuber Blondbassist found a way to clip through the locked vault in Wolfenstein 2: The New Colussus. What’s inside? Some documents and a console that connects to an arcade mode and an in-game shop. The vault is set to unlock officially on November 7 when the first DLC drops.
Wolfenstein 2's base, the U-boat Eva’s Hammer, features an obstacle course known as the ‘kill house’ where BJ and pals can compete for the top score. The top time for the kill house seems to be permanently held by Set Roth’s cat/monkey hybrid, but one player found a clever way to get first place.
The idea of a shared universe between Doom and Wolfenstein goes all the way back to Doom II, but it’s never been officially confirmed. A special weapon at the end of Wolfenstein 2 is further evidence that the games share a common timeline.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has a fully playable reskinned version of 1993's Wolfenstein 3D. “Wolfstone” can be found on the resistance U-boat and it’s a ton of fun. You can watch me play some in the video above.
Wolfenstein’s BJ Blazkowicz is one of the original first person shooter protagonists. He is a muscle bound action hero, the all-American army man. Through examining BJ’s body, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus paints a thin line between power fantasy and Aryan ideals.
Of the past 72 hours, I spent nearly 24 of them streaming Wolfenstein games. I am very tired, which makes it slightly ironic when I say that the whole thing was an eye-opening experience for me.
Games are censored in Germany all the time, and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is no different. Here’s one of the ways the game is different to the one we’re playing in America.
The warm sun beats down on a main street in Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, just in time for the Victory Day parade. Uniformed SS march down swastika-filled streets to thunderous applause. By the old diner, two members of the Ku Klux Klan practice their German. Everyone is white and happy. And it is so fucked up.
There are a ton of things to pick up in Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, ranging from postcards and vinyl albums to newspaper clippings. Most of them are simply there to build out the game’s Nazi-ruled America, but one in particular makes fun of the magazine Mother Jones for a profile of Richard Spencer it ran exactly…
